are these Hornet parts a new design? (see pic enclosed)

I started my FP Hornet and noticed these features on the parts pictured below.

You can see a boss area on the aft end of the upper frame and on the tail bevel gear holder. These look suspiciously like holes for set/grub screws to hole the tail boom in place. The instructions also make no mention of these.

Also look at the tail rotor pitch slider. It came this way out of the package. No assembly was required. The instructions still show you having to install the bearing and the pitch yoke arm as seperate pieces.

what do you guys think?

Yes, those bosses are for 3mm set screws. 3X3 works good, available from your local hobby shop.

When i purchased a replacing boom, i look that it has changed too, its extremity are smaller for the diameter... not good when you put the screw to block it !!
